This delicious Rum and Raspberry Cocktail is always a winner at a party. The spiced rum and raspberry flavours work so incredibly well together. It is the perfect party cocktail. It is so easy to make and great for events too! I also love making this as a Christmas party drink as it’s rich red colour and the addition of rosemary and fresh raspberries on the glass makes it feel even more like Christmas.
Good drinks are perfect all year round. I have loved coming up with new cocktails and easy to make drinks in time for the festive season and beyond. This one is probably my favourite. Raspberries and rum work incredibly well together.
How to garnish a Christmas cocktail
I added a little garnish of a rosemary sprig with raspberries threaded on to give it a more fancy look. Rosemary is great for decorating Christmas food and drink as it sort of looks likes Christmas tree. Plus it smells divine. The rest of the year it is a really nice flourish.
This drink goes perfectly with my Christmas graze table. Click the link below to find out more about what I created for this incredible Christmas sharing table.
Raspberry Liqueur or Fresh Raspberries?
Heron Framboise Raspberry Liqueur Recipes
For this drink I used Raspberry Liqueur. I was gifted a bottle of the White Heron British Framboise Raspberry Liqueur and I haven’t stopped using it. It’s lovely in Prosecco or Champagne but also as a way to make lemonade a little more interesting after work. If you have just with lemonade add a little fresh lemon juice. It tastes wonderful.
The essence of our raspberries, grown in the fields of Herefordshire, is perfectly captured in this liqueur. The vibrant colour is matched by irresistible summer flavours, light and zesty yet crammed with fruity notes. A wonderful addition to fizz and champagne and an exciting new dimension to cocktails.White Heron
You only need a little of this at a time as the flavour is delicious and is so fruity. I hadn’t used raspberry liqueur before trying this but is now a drink I would always have in my drinks cupboard.
Fresh Raspberry – Rum and Raspberry Cocktail
If you don’t have a raspberry liqueur it’s easy to make a fresh raspberry substitute for this cocktail recipe. Start off by taking a few raspberries, about 5 per glass you’re going to make. Pop them in a chopping board and using a fork squish them. Squish them real good. Then add the juicy raspberries into the glass and then create the drink as the instructions below. Scroll down.
